Mystery switch

I have a Mobile Suite fifth wheel. There is a plastic toggle switch in the water hook up compartment with no markings. What is it for?

I don't have a 5th wheel, so this is a total guess, but could it be where it switches between a city water connection and filling the fresh water tank? My RV has a switch like that.

still a mystery

Thanks everyone! The Mobile Suite is a 2006 if that helps. There is a light switch in the compartment but this switch is separate and doesn't control the light.

It is a remote switch for the water pump--supposed to be so the outside shower can be used without going inside the trailer. It should operate pretty much like a ceiling light with 2 switches on different walls, but I think the inside switch has to be on first--have never used mine.
If the trailer is new to you, I have an '05 36TK3 and will help if you have other questions.

I checked this morning I do have two switches in that compartment one for the light and one for the water pump. Stand corrected.
